Course description

AIAG-VDA Process FMEA and Control Plans for Practitioners and Facilitators

Join Omnex for this important industry approach integrating AIAG and VDA FMEAs. Omnex’s FMEA experts, many of whom are writers of the FMEA standards, have worked extensively with both AIAG and VDA FMEAs formats. They will show you how to manage your existing AIAG or VDA FMEAs and the steps to transition to the AIAG-VDA FMEA approach.

Omnex will share best-in-class practices to get the most of the AIAG-VDA PFMEA including managing requirements, integrating PPMs and Warranty History, and creating a product and process architecture for managing FMEAs. Get the greatest savings by employing Process Reuse and also linking PPM and Warranty History with AIAG-VDA PFMEA.

This 2 day (open enrollment) or 3-day seminar addresses all of the elements of the Process Failure Mode Effects Analysis (PFMEA) and Control Planning process and defines it as a process within your organization. This class was designed as a “how-to” for practitioners and facilitators, utilizing a hands-on approach to understanding and using the seven steps of the AIAG-VDA PFMEA process that has been modified and improved by Omnex. This course is intended to be a dynamic, hands-on offering with approximately half the class time spent in workshops. This training offers an optional certification exam in addition to an optional one or two days of the workshop to develop your own process using AIAG-VDA PFMEA (onsite training only).

Who should attend?


No prior knowledge is necessary. However, a mix of students with knowledge of process design & development and/or manufacturing and basic Quality Assurance concepts is preferred.

Background in AIAG FMEA 4th Edition is good, but not required.

Who Should Attend

Those who have direct responsibility for introducing new manufacturing processes and systems would benefit from this seminar. This includes: program/productmanagers, quality managers, design engineers, manufacturing engineers, APQP team members and others who have direct responsibility for new process development and improvement.

Those directly responsible for PFMEA creation or facilitation should attend this course to upgrade their skills to the AIAG-VDA PFMEA 1st Edition.
